Landmark's E Street Cinema: what do users think?

Chase Carrell: Excellent full bar/concession stand, with a clean/friendly atmosphere. Would be a 5 star if they had Icees and reclining seats (currently old school theater seats, though still comfy). Theater 4 is nice and large.

Phin Yeee: Love this place. They have fun midnight showings at an affordable price. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They even check if you qualify for any discounts before you purchase. Plus, Mondays and Tuesdays are only $7. Even if you buy from their website they have a very forgiving cancelation policy.

Thomas Ratliff: E Street is still classic. Get candy or hot snacks, have a beer or a wine, see an amazing independent, foreign or cult film in style. And all at good prices for downtown DC. Love this theater

Moxxie & Luci: More classical than harkins theater and see alot of classic/retro movies too! Not to mention the employees there are kind too. Hope they have a great day

The Avalon Theatre: what do users think?

Sara Grafals: Excellent Covid safe theater. Vaccination card with identification required as well as mask use. Great movie selection! 👏

Leif Engler: I watched star wars here once. But normally they play more artsy films.

Baharson: We watched Fauci there. Mostly empty so it was good. Sound and picture quality is good. Seats were comfortable. Keep in mind this is a nonprofit organization so support it !

Ann Brennan: I haven’t been to this theatre in years. Was pleasantly surprised by the recent improvements. They even have a small selection of beer and cappuccino

Suns Cinema - Theater & Bar: what do users think?

Lillian C: David is a righteous dude and the flicks are excellent. I love bringing people here because it’s always a great time. The decor is mighty fine. David been coming up with his own cocktails that rival those of actual bars. The booze selection is small but excellent - local products and Amaros amongst no more than 20 bottles (I think my home bar is larger.)

Ben Proshek: Cool place! A 20-seat theater made of thrift store antique chairs in what appears to be the front room of a converted row house. Bar in the back (cheap drinks and popcorn). Older fun/artsy movies shown with 10-min intermission. Young crowd.

David Battey: Suns is just a wonderful "hole in the wall" almost speakeasy neighborhood theater. Well curated offbeat themed movie months, terrific sound & excellent beverage selection. Almost hate to let the secret out about this place-its seating capacity is only about 48!

Mike Braaten (Mike B): Inventive cocktails and lesser-known titles abound at this converted row house turned cinema.

Suzannah Van Rooy: This theater has so very little space for all of its character. Different models of chairs make up the seating, affordable drinks, old school popcorn machine, red velvet roped in porch and eclectic movie varieties.

Jonathan Rios: Good ticket prices, beautiful ambiance, the sound system and quality is pretty awesome for a place like this. I will come every week!

Joseph Peralta: Great space. You can pick your seats when purchasing tickets in advance. They bring you your order to your seats. Staff is amazing.

B Wilson: My favorite theater to visit! The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Love their beer and wine selection and it is never over crowd when I visit which I love.

H.C. ely: Unique and first rate. Very clean and the staff were professional. They made our theater experience unencumbered which released us to emerge in the film.

Carl-Gustav Anderson: Wonderful little theater. Cozy and friendly. Nice selection of food and drinks, and great selection of films.

Miracle Theatre: what do users think?

Luis Rueda: This is a great, old fashioned neighborhood movie theater. I went as a chaperone to a 4th grade class. The staff at the theater were simply great. They were patient when dealing with a large, chaotic bunch of kids. They were very welcoming and helpful. The theater brought back memories of when I was a kid. It is great having the Miracle Theater in the neighborhood. I highly recommend it.

dipika: Lovely, small theater perfect for intimate shows. The staff were friendly and quick to check vaccination records and orient us to the space. Because it was a vaudeville theater back in the day and continues to show movies, they sell typical movie theater concessions which is actually really fun for concerts. The seats and overall seating space are small and out of date, so not the most comfortable, but the overall experience makes up for it.

Andi Gunther: I went to a Laura Stevenson show last night. It was awesome! Super kind employees and awesome venue.

Danielle Scott: My first here. 5 mins into the movie we noticed the wrong movie was playing but that was fixed in a timely manner. The popcorn is decent, prices are reasonable. The seats gets uncomfortable after awhile but other than that I enjoyed myself will definitely be back.

Rohan Bhargava: Really nice venue for live music. Acoustics were excellent and service was great.

aaron ackley: This is a great venue. We were there for The Moth, but will be watching the calendar for other events. Drinks are generous and the popcorn reasonable.

Amy Suchodolski: Super cute with a lot of history. Attended a concert and the sound was wonderful.

Mollie Ellis: We had an incredible experience there for my sons bday. I rented the theater on a Sunday morning and the kids had a blast.

Regal Gallery Place: what do users think?

A.S.C. Automotive Detailing Services, LLC: I saw "Top Gun Maverick" for the second time here today and loved every moment of it! The movement of the chairs, the sound effects, vibrations, the wind blowing etc was really intense. This is such a wonderful way to view this movie. Worth every penny!! Incredible experience.🙌🏾💫💫💫💫💫

a mb: Everything was clean, service was super fast, the lady at the concession stand was Supra helpful and kind. We have to use the restrooms and they were super clean. Went for the 4DX experience and it was super cool! The auditorium super clean too, the gentleman that scanned the tickets was super kind and help us with kid glasses for our functions, he was happy even though he had to go to another place to get them. They validate parking, everything was superb (-; everyone was kind, they work like a team, I was so positively impressed because the last time we came, everything that could be bad was worse lol 😆 Is so cool to see how good this place is now! Coming back for sure! Even though we have to drive 35 minutes lol the 4DX and the location is worth it.! Thank you for your hard work, we can see the difference.

A Michell: Great place to catch a movie or meal.4D theater is cool. Not for those that get motion sickness. Only issue I had was the theater was absolutely freezing cold.

Mark Stern: A wonderful place! Almost every seat is a good one since the theaters are relatively small. Great drinks and concessions. Better than E Street!

Madelaine Dudley: This is absolutely my favorite theater. So happy to see they were able to make it through the pandemic. Being able to return and do one of my favorite things has been such a joy. The staff here is also amazing. In particular, the concession attendant with the fabulous style, fresh nails, and upbeat personality. Love them.

leah todd: Movie theater not too crowded. Comfortable seats.

Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater: what do users think?

Dan Whitlock: Caught and evening movie, Captain marvel, at the IMAX Air and space museum. The film experience was very cool but it was almost worth it just to see the Air and space museum empty at night. They have regular concessions and there is not a bad seat in the house. Very glad we took the time to see a movie there.

Albert: Always so impressed with the screen here. Have been twice and each time I am equally in awe. The venue is well-maintained and clean. I saw Rogue one here on Christmas eve and was impressed with how well the staff kept the lines moving with such a large number of people trying to get in. There are concessions (beer, wine, soda, etc) , which was a nice touch. Expect to pay $7 though for a beer. Would go back.

AMC Georgetown 14: what do users think?

Alida “Ally” Pham: Love late night movie nights here by myself! Seats recline, and it’s always clean and when you watch the late movies it’s not too busy. Friendly staff, $10 parking next door garage with your movie!

Shomik Das: Ideally, I would love a dine-in theater. However, this location is clean, has friendly staff and keeps a tight ship on their facilities. They are helpful and there is a good selection of theaters and times available. In the area, this is where to watch movies. It is also close to many places where you can get dinner.

Shannon McReynolds: I used the online option to purchase my ticket, as well as popcorn and a drink. That made it very easy to through and pick up my snacks. The theater recliners are plush with options for a foot rest. Watching our movie was great!

Alex Navarro: Finally got to take our preschoolers to their first movie since you know, covid and all. We were able to pick our seats and everyone was masked. It was not crowded and felt very safe. The chairs are great and my kids were very impressed!

Agent Star: Parking isn’t free in the area, but the theater is nice and up to date for the most part. I like this location because of the park on the water just outside the theater. It’s a good place to take a stroll after your movie.

Graham Rogers: Good experience pricy food Fellow customer reviews: "I slept better then I did at most hotels" - charles "It was good" - big man "It was kinda like that one time in whiplash where he played the drums" hendoh "Pretty good, should have had reclining chairs" - doonte "Pretty good" - da will Zygote "Good" - the big Zach "It was amazing" -coolm3lon

Darell Jones: What a great, safe, beautiful movie place for family or those looking for a place to hang out. The downside is parking at certain times and food can be costly depending on where you go am sure. We are making this our theatre so we will be updating our review soon for a possible 5star depending on experience

Tye Kuzniczci: My wife and I love this theater. They always have at least one or two independent films playing, which is very nice. I’d always chose to go here rather than one of the larger cinemas.

M. Marzulla: Nice theater, price for tickets are par for the area, competitive beer and cocktail prices (for a movie theater). If you are seeing a popular movie, beware that it can get PACKED. If you are prepared for that, then this is a great theater. Staff were also very quick (and friendly) getting through the concessions line which should be noted, because I have seen MUCH emptier venues really struggle with this.

Nicole Derrickson: The Arlington is. Very nice and comfy theater. Feels very intimate and modern at the same time. The prices are reasonable and the comedians were funny. Definitely plan to visit this theater again in the future. I tried the nachos they were good nothing over the top.

Sassi Whayz: This show was my first visit to the DraftHouse. It’s a chill vibe!!!!! I look forward to going back!!!

Mike Pigg: We watched a comedy show, had a good time. Good pizza and plentiful drinks. Seating was a little annoying, so get in early.

Peter Strapp: Great experience for a private event. Highly recommend. We did a kids birthday and the staff and management did everything to make it easy and fun for events.

Eli Gilbert: Large comfortable space, fast and courteous service, and good food! I went to see Jokes & Aces (funny bunch)...definitely will go back!

Emilee Burrows: Great service, great show, food and drinks ordered at your seat and brought to you through out the show. Definitely will be back!

AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center: what do users think?

Jesse Shaw: Great theater that prioritizes showing features you don’t usually see in other theaters. The international films they show through the year are particularly valuable. Theater is always clean, staff was always very kind.

Jack Wolfe: i’ve had 2 of the most vivid moviegoing experiences here. 2001 in 70mm and inland empire on its limited run. absolutely gorgeous quality and the sound is phenomenal. this is the only place i go for limited screenings of films now

Mia Speight: I attended several film festivals here. The location was great with ample space for red carpet and will call. I love that the larger theater has an old world charm to it. The smaller theater is intimate and great for talk backs after film screenings.

Antionette Aquino: I actually have a movie that Premiered there for the DC 48 HOUR FILM FESTIVAL. Such a beautiful theater. 😍

Bryton Bode: Such a great old time theater. It has the feel of an old theater but is still as clean and as well kept as ever. Staff is very helpful and nice. They have a little cafe. They do offer various beers and wines, as well as a full espresso stand.

Luciano Aquino: This is a beautiful theater.

AMC Shirlington 7: what do users think?

Rebecca Chapman: I really like this location! Arlington Village has many amazing restaurants and shops. This theater also sells beer and wine, so it’s a great place to go for a date after dinner and see a movie together! They have leather reclining seats. Good choices for snacks. Friendly helpful staff. This is a very nice local place to see the top movies. It’s close by the freeway so you can pop on and off the freeway quickly! I recommend this theater! Enjoy!

William West Hopper (DC Car Guy): Well used center seats. You would have thought during pandemic reopening they would have recovered the seats in studio three. The movie warching experience was good. Though the sound and vibration from the action film in the next studio did make its way over to our more quiet film. The reclining seats (all of the in studio 3) were nice other than the center ones were well worn. Other than that the theater was clean. Did not buy any drinks or food.

Lolita Pollard-Kezele: Small AMC. Very comfortable seating and drama free. Get there early because parking is tricky. This is the closest theater to my home and we go often.

James Derenge: Great place to see a movie. Wide recliner seats. Normal size screen. Not crowded for matinees. I just saw Top Gun Maverick and was super comfortable the whole time.

Emily Larson: Great staff, great theater. We came here recently and had problems with our seats and the staff was super nice, quick and responsive, and ended up giving us vouchers to come back another time when they couldn’t fix the problem. Thanks, team!

Judy Robinson: Theater had some kind of tech difficulties. Had to wait and there was no fountain drinks. But enjoyed Jurrasic World. Mid day movies are great!

HersheyKiss Shelton: Frequent flyer. They have come a long way! Menu options increasing. Pricing going up😫 I appreciate the efforts put into keeping it clean. Fresh popcorn is always best(as of late is has been stale and very salty)

angela hamilton: The recliner seats were enjoyable. The screens are larger that normal theater. Memberships, cheaper if you come before 4 for children.

Yolanda Thompson: The experience was wonderful the reclining seats and it was not a large crowd I had a nice time will be going back again

Marietta Brown: I love going here during matinee time because it’s cleaner and quieter. Also, the concession stand is fresher.

Jazmyn: I have no issues everytime I come here, clean bathrooms and theaters, the last time though the volume for the previews were really loud. I had to ask them to turn it down, and they explained it was just for the previews like an attention grabber. The price for food is outrageous its more than the tickets lol

JBG 44 ME: Best theater in town, great service and food including snacks. The Recliner seats are the best and plenty of space. Jist one mote Bathrooms need to be update and add more space. Always a line after a movie.

Brian Copes: So I have been coming to this theater for 4 years and love it. Near a metro, recliner chairs, decent selection of films and friendly staff. Bathroom floors can be a little sticky but it’s a public restroom. Check this place out!

Alex Cabe: PROS: Very convenient to Metro, comfortable seats, clean theaters, friendly staff. CONS: Sound leaks between theaters - easy to hear other movies during the quiet parts of your movie; lacks Imax, Dolby, and stadium seating.

Casey Kesterson: Reclining chairs and lots of room. Also liked that you can pick your seats ahead of time.

David W.: The recliner seats in the modest sized theater was a good size, and the refreshment stand was relatively quick. Reaching understanding with the cashier that getting a free refill of a large popcorn - a part of the Stubs Premiere membership I have - means not being charges for the item twice took a few minutes. A nice neighborhood theater with ample parking adjacent.

Rasha Sharif: Never had an issue, easy to get in and if the seats recliner is not working you can change it. Nice local cinema.

Derek Duarte: Comfy seats. Seat reservations. Snack are good. 3D movies available. Easy to get to from bus stop or metro train.

Lincoln Theatre: what do users think?

Chris Peele: The Aurora Aksnes concert was beautiful, however shorter than her other shows this US tour. An intimate setting with seating and first come General Admission. Unparalleled view of the stage, and ability to hold your seat once you have it if you have to use the restroom or grab drinks. No parking of course so plan on stressing trying to find a 24hr parking garage near by for about $30 for 4-24 hrs.

Jeff White: Great venue. Great acoustics. Nice to have drinks available. Parking is a challenge so figure that out beforehand. A lot of the street parking is permit only. PS - Colin Hay is absolutely fantastic. Great performance and great story teller.

Quentin Hodges: A beautiful, old theater in the heart of Washington D.C. Classic architecture with a great sound system. The seats are old, yet comfortable. Street parking may be difficult but we found a $10 parking garage less than a ten-minute walk to/from the theater. Prior to the show we had a great dinner at Ted’s Bulletin, also within walking distance.

Neil Crowell: Saw Mat Kearney on 4/24/22, a general admission show. Got in line at 6:15 for doors at 6:30 and was able to get in the 4th row, dead center. Amazing experience.

Steve Little: The show was incredible and the atmosphere was electric. It would have been great if the AC unit was working.

Eileen Potocnak Arnold: Great venue to see musicians/theater/etc. in an old space that has been nicely renovated.

Catherine Weber: They have terrific films. Prices are great. Friendly staff. Small neighborhood anchor. Love going there.

Elizabeth DelFranco: Even though the movie we saw this past Saturday was in the "Pop Up" temporary location, I enjoyed seeing the original facade of the theater. Will definately go back to experience the renovated theater when completed. The temporary theater is probably not a great idea. Uncomfortable, not dark enough, felt like I was back in elementary school with no desktop to lay my head down.

Ian Blackwell Rogers: The city of Greenbelt and the Friends of Greenbelt Theatre have beautifully restored this lovely deco movie theatre from 1937. Big screen, delicious locally made snacks, and a mixture of new and classic movies. One of the beautiful old cinemas of the DC area.

Frances Whalen: Had never heard of this gem before, the whole area is a wonderful spot. Got a chance Saturday to see the last movie before the renovation closing, Rocky Horror was so much fun. Cannot wait to return in the future.

Amber Emory: Visited this place for the first time in several years. Nicely renovated and prices are very reasonable (movie, soda, and popcorn for $17). Shows great independent films too.

Robert Hall: Beautifully restored 1930s era theater in a depression era planned community.
